<3 Darcy & the LoG Team

Features:
Miscellaneous
  • Added a “Match Ready” sound effect that plays when matchmaking is complete.
  • Hero Experience bars are now coloured relevant to clan, rather than just blue.
  • Added a “Do not show me again” option to the computer recommended specs notification on game launch. We may expand this to apply for players below minimum specs in the future
  • Interactive quest UI now has sound.
  • Implemented a “Community Localiser” badge for folks who have contributed worthy additions to our community localisation tool. News on how to get this will be coming out soon.
  • Removed mention of the old LoG forums from the bug sender.

Party Widget Improvements
  • Party Widget now animates down and up in “drawer” like fashion
  • Party Widget menu flow has been redesigned. Current options are as follows…
    - Invite Friends
    - Recruit AI / Dismiss AI (Context sensitive)
    - Stop Search / Leave Party (Context sensitive)
    - Start Private Game (Autofills party with AI and opens Multiplayer Game mode selection)
    - Start Public Game (Opens Multiplayer Game mode selection, which will prompt player matchmaking)
  • Moved “Party Matchmaking” toggle option to Multiplayer Game Mode selection screen.
  • Party Widget menu items now have tooltips.
  • Party Widget “Back” button resized to align with other menu standards.

Offline Mode Communication Improvements
  • Implemented an “Offline” icon that appears in key places when an internet connection cannot be made, or a player has chosen to remain offline. When relevant, you will find this on a few key locations as follows...
    - On main menu, instead of the Party Widget icon.
    - On main menu, next to greyed out “Multiplayer” option.
    - In Hero Mastery Menu.
    - At end of game, when Hero experience would be granted.

Fixes:
  • Fixed an issue causing Jewellery box unlock progress to not record correctly sometimes.
  • Fixed an issue where the world would turn into one flat colour.
  • Out of client Steam invites now correctly work as intended.
  • Public games should now start correctly if a player is still in their loadout screen when the timer runs out.
  • Plague Bearers now correctly removes Prestige instead of granting it.
  • Crooks effect has been temporarily reverted to its old effect as it’s new effect caused a flow break in the prologue. This will be reintroduced at a later date.
  • Barnaby's Forerunner skin once again shows it’s correct texture.
  • Seasons DLC has had it's icon/image restored in Skeeve's Shop.
  • Adjusted text on some Jewellery’s unlock condition to accurately reflect 2 games rather than the displayed 3.
  • Fixed an issue where Chrysocolla and Spyglass had their effects swapped.
  • Tooltips on the main menu no longer overlap those of the newsfeed buttons.
  • Found and safely returned some missing Boast icons in the Hero Mastery screen (they were on holiday).
  • Added updated localisation for 2.0.2 features and strings.

Known:
  • We're tracking some edge cases causing reconnect to not function correctly (potentially if a player tries to rejoin exactly as a King's Declaration is taking place). Send us your logs/bug reports!

An Ever-Growing Adventure



Armello officially launched in 2015 and since then our primary goal here at League of Geeks has been to continue developing new and interesting features to progress and refine Armello's world and its intricate mechanics. By purchasing Armello now, you are purchasing years of love and care, with the knowledge that we will continue to devote our hearts and brains to improvements moving forward.

RNG Disclaimer

The best tabletop adventures are also wondrous story generators, creating those shared memories of epic adventures with friends and loved ones. In remaining true to this core inspiration, and to provide the twists and turns of any great adventure, Armello features numerous elements of chance; including drawing cards from shared decks, physics-based dice rolls, skill tests in quests, procedural map generation, dungeon auto-exploration, and random story events.

The strategy and immense depth within Armello lies in exerting your mastery of its systems in such a way that you slide the odds as far in your favour as possible - and are prepared to pivot on your strategy at any given turn.

We feel Armello has something to offer all kinds of players, however, considering the above...

  • If your blood boils at the very mention of "RNG"... Armello may not be your cup of tea.
  • If you are a player that embraces the storytelling potential of RNG or revels in exerting your mastery over its chaos, Armello is very likely to be right up your alley!

Feature List

  • Easy to Play but Hard to Master - Armello is an intuitive game, easy to pick up and experience but with deep and emergent strategy.
  • Fast & Thoughtful - Adventuring in Armello is fast-paced fun but filled with deadly tactical and politically complex decisions requiring careful forethought and planning.
  • Multiple Playable Heroes - Includes 8 playable Heroes. Each unique Hero possess a special power, stat line and Ai personality. Also heroes can be customised with Amulet and Signet Ring load-outs to match your play style or counter an opponent's strategy.
  • Dynamic Sandbox - Armello features a gorgeous dynamic world which procedurally generates a new board each and every game, complete with a dynamic quest system ensuring no two games of Armello are ever the same.
  • Turn-Based Day & Night Cycle - Armello features a fuzzy turn-based system, cycling between Day and Night phases. The fuzzy turns allow you to still play cards and do certain actions when its not your turn, and when it is you use Action Points to move around the hex board.
  • World Class Music & Audio - By Michael Allen, internationally acclaimed artist Lisa Gerrard, Stephan Schutze, Jacek Tuschewski and Kpow Audio.
  • Animated Cards - Armello features over 150 beautifully animated in-game Cards, from artists all over the world.
  • True Tabletop Feel - We've cherry-picked the best parts of the tabletop experience, like the hex-based board and our custom physics-based dice!

About This Game

Armello is a grand swashbuckling adventure that combines three styles of play; The deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top board games, combined with a character role-playing system.

As a hero from one of the clans of Armello, you'll quest, scheme, hire agents, explore, vanquish monsters, cast spells and face off against other players, with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. The Kingdom of Armello is as dangerous as it is beautiful, perils, banes and bandits hide around every corner and a spreading corruption known as the rot is leaving no creature untouched.

Armello is League of Geeks’ attempt to revolutionise digital board and card games, whilst providing players a rich world within which they can craft their own stories of epic adventure. The aim was to create a rich game full of backstabbing, close shaves, shattered alliances, ruses and empty promises - a perfect game to play online with your friends.
